Devon Sproule @ Smith’s Alternative, Wed 20th April, 2016
Devon Sproule shares with her audience unfaltering beauty and integrity. An earthy, pure appearance – arising from having known the vastness of the world and the human condition – an unimposing strength and wisdom. Tales of childhood, life and loved ones told between songs, each word carefully articulated to eliminate risk of inaccurate portrayal. Gorgeous lyrics of nature, colour, texture and family shared atop a raw yet faultless, clear and ranging vocal. Her guitar or a cappella snapping and stomping accompaniments adding seamlessly to the already rich layers of story and imagery. There are no gimmicks, loop machines, makeup or ego here, just pure and raw beauty and integrity.
